We were on vacation when I found a brown pair of the recycled yoga mat sandals. So when my husband commented that I already had a perfectly good pair of Sanuks, it wasn’t difficult to rattle off enough reasons I wanted another pair.
Just a few days later, I found out PlanetShoes.com is sponsoring the Go Green Get Fit Challenge. Not only does PlanetShoes.com carry Sanuk and Keen (two of my favorite eco-friendly shoe obsessions… I mean brands), they have tons of active lifestyle options – running, hiking, rock-climbing, water sports, tennis. They also have vegan shoes.
Aside from being a brilliant sponsor for this group of women who are committed to improving their health and lifestyle, PlanetShoes.com also partners with some charitable organizations I support and believe in (World Wildlife Fund, Sierra Club, 1% for the Planet). From shoe recycling to carbon offsets, they truly care about making our world a happier, healthier place.
A sustainable company that gives back to worthwhile causes plus cool, eco-friendly shoes equals all the excuses you need to feel good about replacing those running shoes you should have retired a few dozen miles ago.
I received no compensation for this post, but PlanetShoes.com will be offering prizes throughout the Go Green Get Fit Challenge. Be sure to follow them on Facebook or Twitter and join the Go Green Get Fit challenge at Eco Mom Alliance to be eligible.
